Big FIND and my Pumpkin.

Last week Sherrie came to Halifax for a visit and as usual after dinner we headed to Value Village and what did I find....
12 Nancy Drew Books!!! I loved reading these as a child and am now in the process of building my collection. I already had a few from childhood (still in my parent's basement...) but most I borrowed from the library. I just couldn't pass them up and I already finished my first book! They are great stories.
This year for Halloween we decided to stay home and hand out candy. So to let the kiddies know to come on over, I carved my very first pumpkin that doesn't have the traditional triangle eyes and toothy smile. I had a BLAST carving it and enjoyed it's glow all evening.
Now I just need to get the evil tree's eyes and the moon to glow next year. I also made roasted pumpkin seeds and they were a delicious and healthy snack that I enjoyed all week!
I hope you had a great Halloween!


  1. I had so much fun! Thanks again for a great time! :)

  2. I should try and go to Value Village next time I'm in Halifax. I've only went once. I love your pumpkin carving. We only got three trick or treaters (we are too far in the woods I guess).

  3. Oooh, Nancy Drew! I'm walking down memory lane with you. :) And I LOVE your jack-o-lantern!

  4. Your pumpkin is amazing. You are a budding artist! Love it.
